The beach of Galissas is located just 7km away from Hermoupolis, on the western part of Syros island. A wide and open coast to the shore sheltered in a protected bay, among the mountains of Harassona and Glarontas. The crystal clear waters and the thin sand of this beach make it one of the most popular beaches of the island. The area is well-organized, with hotels, rooms and apartments to let, a camping and a variety of taverns and bars to choose from.
The palm trees on the side of the beach and the tiny harbor with the small boats and the stone-built pier, all compose a beautiful landscape you can marvel at from the impressive hill of Aghia Pakoú with its scenic chapel. On the same hill, history has left its mark in the ruins of a prehistoric fortified settlement, an important archaeological site of the island. The village of Galissas boasts a variety of activities, ranging from art to sports and local flavors. Either by car, by bus or by private boat, Galissas beach is the ideal choice for those who want it all!
